3.79/5 rDev -2.1%
22 oz bottle - lable is stamped 111 BORN110512 . so I guess this is almost a year old bottle.
appears opaque black, with ruby highlights in the corners of the glass. thick tan colored head that leaves great lacing. big roasty and earthy aroma, a little fruitiness too, must be the yeast. taste is a nice balance between acidic roastiness and slightly sweet malt. dry aftertaste. thicker body, but higher carbonation than expected.
overall a nice unique beer. I definitely see the German Wheat Ale influence.

Born 09/24/12. 22 oz bomber into an over sized wine glass. Thanks to BobZ for sending me home with this one!
Pours an inky black body with two fingers worth of the mocha stuff. Really sticks around for a long time with decent lacing and retention. The aroma is less "German Yeast" than I thought it would be. Loads of bakers chocolate and dry cocoa powder. Has a subtle oaty/wheaty maltiness going on. Sweet vanilla and a touch of dark fruits and roast, but for me this is just a chocolate bomb. Taste follows the nose with huge chocolate notes with faded yet pleasant roast and dark fruits. Light coffee, vanilla and anise. I know this is a lower abv stout, but the mouth feel is lacking a bit. Its just a bit too prickly and a bit too thin. Overall this was a really nice stout that could use a bit more body, but otherwise I enjoyed it. It has an especially awesome nose.
